Introducing Forefront Identity Manager 2010

This module is a tour of many of the built-in features of FIM focusing on the user experience. The student will explore the FIM interface, the high level architecture of FIM, and the business needs that FIM addresses. In this module, the student will examine FIM in its installed and configured state, whereas the rest of the course will be spent understanding how FIM works, and building the fully configured FIM from a raw installation. The lab explores creating a new user, managing groups and credentials for that user, and the experience of that new user.

Lab: The FIM Experience

The Synchronization Service Manager

This module introduces the FIM Synchronization Service Manager and explains its features through scenarios that do not use the FIM Portal. It introduces the main tools (such as Metaverse Designer, Operations Tool, and Joiner), and covers the basic configuration of a Management Agent along with run profiles, results verification, and simple Metaverse search. During the lab, students will create a new Management Agent for a simple HR system.

Lab: Importing and Synchronizing Data

More About Synchronization

This module looks at various types of Management Agent (MA), including LDAP and file-based sources. It covers concepts such as schema discovery, filters, join and projection rules, connectors and disconnectors, joining, provisioning, deprovisioning, and different kinds of attribute flow. In the lab, students create two more Management Agents, and establish a simple data-driven scenario for managing a directory (AD LDS).

Lab: Joining Data from Another MA

Lab : Provisioning AD LDS

The FIM Service and Portal

This module introduces the FIM Synchronization Service Manager and explains its features through scenarios that do not use the FIM Portal. It introduce the main tools (such as Metaverse Designer, Operations Tool, and Joiner), and covers the basic configuration of a Management Agent along with run profiles, verifying results, and simple Metaverse search. During the lab, students create a new Management Agent for a simple HR system.

Lab: Managing Users in the FIM Portal

Lab: Creating the FIM MA and Synchronizing

Managing Synchronization from the Portal

This module explores creation of an Active Directory MA, and configuration via the portal to manage mailbox-enabled users in AD. Aspects of this process include synchronization rules, workflows, and management policy rules, including complex attribute flows. In the labs, students configure FIM so that users are automatically created (provisioned) into AD, renamed, and removed (deprovisioned) as necessary.

Lab: Inbound Synchronization Rules

Lab: Synchronizing Active Directory Users

Managing Credentials with FIM

This module primarily explores passwords. First, it addresses the essentials of Certificate Management, and then explores in detail the self-service password reset and password synchronization functions. The two labs cover all aspects of password management in FIM (with the exception of writing custom password management workflows and extensions).

Lab: Password Self-service

Group Management

This module covers the management of distribution and security groups, including the relationship between groups in Active Directory and other systems. Synchronization rules, workflows, and MPRs are explored further, along with the configuration of workflow approvals.

Lab: Managing Groups

Other Considerations

This module examines management policy rules (MPRs)- perhaps the most important feature of FIM. It explores the different types of management policy rules, their different uses, how they are processed, and how to troubleshoot them. Then it examines some operational considerations, such as the management of run cycles using scripts, and also covers backup, restore, and disaster recovery.
